Hi Michael,

> coaps schemes?

a bit of context to help you understand why I've raised this feature request.

In the IETF (within the CoRE WG) we are in the process of defining the
interworking between CoAP and HTTP agents.  This same work will also have a
direct impact on the profiles defined by ETSI M2M.

In this respect, the lack of support in browsers for URIs with the coap(s)
scheme is a big hindrance, which needs specific plugins to be worked around.

A more CoAP-friendly registerProtocolHandler API would remove the need to
create and maintain per-browser plugins, and substitute those with a standard,
and native  mechanism.

Thanks, Thomas.
